Notorious Nobodies On the Web .....
From Frank, at Books, Inq., comes a link to this essay by Bryan Appleyard , which states, "the truth is, for the moment, that nobody knows what will happen next. Either we will get more narcissism and self-promotion, enhanced by ever more exotic technology, or this will turn out to be a phase. The blended iPods, the vacuous or weird web celebs, will come to be seen as the florid birth pangs of a technology that, in its highest manifestations, will succeed in bringing the world together. Human nature being what it is, however, there are good reasons to be sceptical if not downright pessimistic." ..... read the essay for yourself, and tell me what you think.
